Ladies and gentlemen, this is going to be epic! Ready? Introducing… the Thin Mint Cocktail.

Three ingredients. Tastes just like a Thin Mint Girl Scout cookie. Perfect for the holidays or St. Patrick’s Day or any day really. 🙂

No bartending or mixology experience needed!

First of all, let’s just get out of the way that I’m not a bartender. I know a few. I do enjoy a flavorful adult beverage. But that’s about as far as my expertise goes. However I invented this cocktail. On accident. Proud moment. Trust me though. It’s a very, very happy accident.

How the Thin Mint cocktail that tastes like the cookie came to be

How this glorious cocktail came to be, went something like this: I ran out and bought some crème de menthe because my plan was to share with you all (and I still am going to share with you soon) a cocktail my grandpa enjoyed.

My family called it “Grandpa’s green drink” but it actually has a proper name, which is a green stinger. You can find my recipe for that green Stinger drink here.

So, after I made and photographed my grandpa’s green drink, I wanted to see what else would go well with the crème de menthe and that’s when I spotted a bottle of Kahlua pre-mixed mudslide in my recently organized liquor cabinet (spring cleaning is a real thing!).

I added the two cordials to a chilled rocks glass full of crushed ice, gave it a stir and took a sip. And it was like a liquid thin mint cookie! So nuts.

Made using mudslide and creme de menthe.

I’m not sure how old the bottle of mudslide in my cabinet is and I’m not even sure if you can buy mudslides ready-mixed anymore, so if you have trouble finding it, here’s how to make your own mudslide.

The garnish makes the drink!

Thin Mint Cocktail

I recommend garnishing this drink with an Andes mint chocolate and a fresh sprig of mint.

When in season, why not go full thin mint  lover here and grab a box of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies too? I mean, it’s for a good cause after all. A thin mint cocktail with a side of thin mints? I think yes. 😀

Make this Thin Mint cocktail virgin!

Want to make a virgin version of this cocktail? You can! Brew a strong cup of coffee, add a heavy pour of cream, sugar and then chill. Use this mixture in place of Kahlua and add creme de menth syrup.

For a more kid-friendly alcohol-free version, you can use chocolate or vanilla milk and creme de menth syrup!
